    I have been making these for decades. They are delicious, crispy, nutty, delicate and always a hit. I keep the dough rolls in the freezer, ready to be baked fresh on a moments notice. This exact recipe came from a San Francisco Junior League Cookbook published in the seventies. Hmmm, never thought to enter them in a cookie recipe contest.

    I make these every year. I roll the logs into red and green sugar to make them festive for Christmas! They are one of my favorite cookies!

    I confirmed with my coworker that she DID the recipe exactly as it's listed above, she did not ommit the coconut. I misunderstood. GOOD COOKIE try!!!!

    A co-worker made these without the coconut and I tell you they are delicious. She provided me witht this recipe and she told me that othe than the coconut, she made no other changes. I would have never thought I would love a cookie with sesame seeds, but I was wrong. I will try this recipe for the holidays, believe me from tasting it from her for the past two years, this cookie is well worth it. DELISH!

    Weird... the short description on the main page said this was a "no-bake recipe". Foiled again!
